How to purchase tickets
TEDxUSU will take place on Friday, October 27, 2017 at 6:00 PM in the newly renovated Daines Concert Hall.
The TEDxUSU team is excited to announce that we are bidding farewell to the ticket lottery system this year! Given the steadily rising demand for TEDxUSU tickets, we have decided to move the event to the newly renovated Daines Concert Hall. This change of venue will nearly quadruple the audience capacity from previous events. We want TEDxUSU to be an event for everyone, and having to tell people no was one of the the hardest parts of the job. Tickets will go on sale on September 20, 2017, at 11:00 AM on the Caine College of the Arts Box Office website.
Tickets will only be available online only at the Caine College of the Arts Box Office website. Tickets are $25, with a $10 discount available to current, card-holding USU students.
Why are we charging?
As the TEDx team discussed our growing program, it became apparent that in order to continue providing a top-quality program we need to cover a small amount of our overhead. The money we expect to collect from the sale of tickets covers a small fraction of the cost of TEDxUSU—we don’t make a profit by any means—but it helps with things like refreshments, swag and travel cost for speakers. We are confident enough in the stellar-ness of our curated content to put our program up there with other top TEDx events and other conferences across the country.

9:30 PM Conclusion of TEDxUSU
The use of social media is strongly encouraged before, during and after TEDxUSU. This isn’t a movie theater—no one will shame you, kick you out or toss a bucket of popcorn in your face for being on your iPhone. In fact, the ultimate success of a presentation depends on those in the audience sharing what they learned, disagreed with, loved or hated. The purpose of TEDxUSU is to spark conversations worth having.
The TEDx team has decided to continue using #TEDxUSU as our event hashtag. It’s simple and short, and we hope enough of our audience share their thoughts that we can see the #TEDxUSU topic trending in the area.
If you use social media on any kind of regular basis, you understand the power an open marketplace of ideas can have in cultivating brilliance and innovation from unlikely sources. Hashtags, trending topics and analytics are all just tools to get the greatest ideas to where they will have the most impact. We like Twitter the most for this purpose because it most easily allows users to 1) track trending topics, especially local ones, and 2) participate equally in conversations, all in a relatively no-frills fashion.
If you don’t have a Twitter, we recommend you sign up for one, and learn how to use it leading up to TEDxUSU so you can be an idea-spreading ninja the day of the conference. If you don’t want a Twitter, we still love you, but please—use any media at your disposal to share all the rad ideas you are going to hear: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Klout, Snapchat, email, newspaper editorials, rotary phone, telegram, horse-drawn carriage, etc.
Soon after the event, we post videos from every talk and performance to our YouTube channel. Share your favorite videos with friends, families, coworkers and acquaintances.
